in colorado that would increase taxes by $950 million in one year and restructure the way that state funds its public schools. we're back with james freeman, and steve moore. so steve let's go to colorado first because it's a very interesting state, trending left politically, with a kind of new coalition of cultural liberals and hispanics. and women. leading to a democratic majority there. and they could take another big step to the left with this ballot initiative. explain. >> no question about it. paul, you're exactly right. colorado is one of those states that has moved more to the left than just about any other state in the country. and partially because of huge democratic money and liberal money that's gone in to that state. so what they've now put on the ballot is a gigantic income tax increase to pay for more money for schools. this is a big power play by the left to expand the size of the state government. the income tax, if it's raised, paul, would get rid of a traditional policy in colorado of a low flat tax. and i would make the case, one of the reasons colorado has been a high grow
on the house position in terms of the resolution they passed back in the spring which had no tax increases, no revenue increases, assumed to the repeal of the affordable care act. it is the antithesis to the senate position. thesenate budge was resolution they passed. they had increased references -- revenues and a differences are so great it is unlikely there will be any kind of agreement to raise revenues because it could not pass in the house of representatives. host: does that doom this effort to failure? guest: now, if people had expectations that this would be a large deficit reduction package achieved by the hope for a deadline of december 13, i think that is off the table. i think there is a real possibility, not of a grand bargain, but of a bargain that will be granted that we got a bargain at all. the american public believes that congress is dysfunctional and cannot achieve anything. at a minimum, it seems there is a good possibility that both mrs. murray and mr. ryan can come together on some sort of package that will show that the house and senate can work together in a minima

republican after republican talking about cutting taxes, talking about growing the economy, but not reaching two of the folks, the middle class, the working man and woman, it's like the republican party has forgotten the middle class exists. >> well, i certainly agree with you, lou, in terms of making that contact with working families. and the biggest challenge families face in virginia is economic opportunity. it's jobs. there are enormous s.w.a.t.s wa because people have been unemployed so long. there's a big difference between me and terry mcauliffe. i can explain my plan to grow jobs and cut taxes, and he's proposing more government spending. $1,700 more in taxes per family versus my $700 tax cut. but a lot of them zero in now this month on obama care. and there's a stark difference between me and terry mcauliffe there also. and once again, his approach is bigger government, and mine is smaller government. i was the first to fight obama care, and he wants to expand it. >> you were the first one to fight it. you were the first one to sue on obama care. >> right. >> at the same time, is t

bag tax. some members don't want it to apply to places who don't sell food, like hardware stores. the 5-cent bag tax is aimed at cutting down on the number of plastic bags in or near local streams. >>> voters in washington state will be casting ballots tomorrow on a measure that could have ripple effects on the food industry all across the country. >> teresa garcia takes a look at a push to require labels on foods with genetically modified ingredients. >> staffers are working the fines at the seattle headquarter on the campaign. >> this is going to be a close election. g voters will decide on tuesday whether to require labeling on foods containing genetically modified organisms or gmo's. elizabeth is with the yes campaign. she says it's about giving shoppers a choice. >> i think it fund mentally boils down to, people want more information about our food. >> the labeling campaign raised $8 million. a fraction of the war chest on the no side. top opposition donors, like biochemical giants and dupont pioneer helped raise $22 million. they claim labels would scare consumers away
. it was central to passing the law. it is sort of like the first president bush saying no new taxes. he broke that pledge. at least he had the honesty to tell everybody he was breaking the pledge. the president pledged this and never admitted he was going to break it. there's millions of people going to lose it, at least 15 million, including people in the small business community. many small business people are going to lose their plans too. >> we're going to get to that. dr. emanuel, the "wall street journal" reported this weekend that you in fact were part of a debate inside the white house at the time about whether or not this claim you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor was misleading. this week -- >> i -- >> let me ask the question. then you can answer. -- whether it was misleading. on megyn kelly's show this week you blamed the insurance companies. >> if an insurance companies decides it's changing how it's going to structure its plan that is not the law doing it. that is the insurance company deciding for business reasons. >> but, doctor, the obama law demands that the insur

. >> will he cut taxes. >> he wanted to cut taxes, hasn't been able to get that through the legislature. the interesting part is he's perceived as very moderate, where you could describe him as moderate because he's a more -- he's not an -- he's a get things done, cut the best deal conservative and he has had to do that in a blue state. i think this is the fascinating test. when he's in iowa, what are the rand pauls and ted cruzes and rick santorum say? does mitt romney's blessing help or hurt? >> he's perceived as a moderate because he embraced the president of the united states on the eve of the 2012 election after super storm sandy. >> the man who by the way made sure that his state got funneled millions of dollars and stood by him when his state was in need. >> other republicans hated him for that. >> they did, but did his embrace, did the embrace mean anything to mitt romney in the end? absolutely not. >> if you speak to some romney folks, they were irritated by it. >> they were irritated by it but did it cause him the election? no, it didn't. this is a personal brand this man has.
us it wasn't a tax when it was. how many times did he tell us you could keep your insurance when you can't. this is an epidemic of dishonesty. and yet reporters won't report it, and poor ed schultz is saying that it's just so positive that nobody dares talk about it. >> bozell is wrong on all accounts. across the board he's wrong. hannity has now been reduced to defending junk insurance policies. and i wonder if he knows that most junk insurance policies only last about a year, when people actually figure out they have been hoodwinked into a policy that doesn't cover snot. that's why obama care is good. sean, i know, it's probably a little over your head. but i'll give it a shot again. a few weeks ago, i asked sean hannity to go face-to-face with me in a debate. instead of accepting what he has decided to do, this is his -- comes back with a challenge, he's playing clips of my show in his media clip or whatever, in his segment. look, i'm about the truth. and it would seem to me that if i'm wrong on these things, that handy would want to go face-to-face with me. i mean, you know, i'm
. young people don't care so much about taxes and regulation. but they all have a cell phone and they're on the internet and they care about their privacy. so do i. i would correct these policies if i were ever the one to make the decisions. i think that would attract new people to the party, not less. >> what do you think of senator cruz? he seems to be catching on. more republicans see him as the leader than you in the party. particularly catching on in iowa, do you think he's your chief rival? if you choose to run. >> i think we're a long way away from that. i haven't even convinced my wife yet whether or not i should do this. no, ted and i are friends. he's a limited government conservative. we don't always agree on everything, but we agree on a lot of things. >> you heard dan pfeiffer there say, he's confident that the website problems will be fixed by the end of november and one of the success stories it appears so far is that -- in your own state, the kentucky website seems to be doing pretty well, 26,000 have signed up for the exchange. what do you make of the fact that so man
businesses are going to be taxed heavily. that small businesses are going to see their rates go through the roof, and they're going to have to let people go. >> well, the fact is that anybody under 50 employees, they don't have to do anything if they don't want to. but folks under 25 employees, we're urging them to check object th on this exchange, because they could get some tax credits and they might be able to provide affordable health insurance for their folks at a lesser cost than what most of them are doing right now. >> so how could 400 businesses in kentucky have it wrong? why don't we have 49 other kentuckies across america? well, it's obstruction. that's the story on the ground in kentucky. but this is the story in washington. >> when it it comes to jobs, some have called the law the single biggest detriment to job creation in america right now. >> part-time workers, the poor, pay still have no insurance, but now they may have no job. >> jobs are being lost, premiums are going up. >> the real problem is we're driving everyone out of the individual market. >> it's time to revis

, taxes and other issues. martha: let's look at other numbers, because there are problem areas for you and areas where terry mcauliffe is quite frankly doing a lot better than you are. look at race among women. he has 50% of the vote. you're at 37. let's show the independent numbers which are also strongly for mcauliffe as well. he is at 46. you are at 31. these are very different numbers than what we see in the overall race. why do you think that is? >> first of all they're moving quickly our way. you know, i grow back to obamacare. independents agree with us. on tax differences between me and terry independents agree with us. that is moving our direction. women make 75% of the health care decisions in this country. more of them learn as they're hearing more and more every day that they don't get to pick their insurance, they don't get to pick their doctor. their doctors will be told how they can or can't treat their family member, women react to that much more. terry mcauliffe fully support that is bruer democrat-run medical system. i oppose it. that is a big attraction for women vot
, increase taxes. ken cuccinelli: create jobs, cut taxes. to stop obamacare and higher taxes, there's only one choice. >> reporter: unlike his rival, mcauliffe supports expanding medicaid under the affordable care act. he says accepting the federal aid would help more virginia residents obtain coverage and benefit the state's economy. >> when we know that 400,000 virginians could gain health care access by accepting the medicaid expansion, we must act. ( applause ) that is virginia money coming back to virginia, and it will create 30,000 new jobs. >> reporter: cuccinelli refuted that claim at last week's final candidate debate. >> he pretends to get $500 million out of the medicaid expansion, which he's called a jobs program. folks, it's welfare, it's not a jobs program. >> reporter: the mcauliffe campaign, meanwhile, has charged republican cuccinelli is outside the mainstream of virginia voters, especially when it comes to women's health issues such as abortion rights and access to contraception. >> let me be crystal clear, i trust women to make their own decisions about their own persona

. gas is cheaper. that makes people feel better. >> don luskin, is this enough to create a consumer tax cut? is this enough to boost the economy? >> look, there's a demand side way of looking at it and a supply side way. the demand side way is having to spend so much on gasoline crowds out other expenditures. i like the supply side way. when gas is cheap, you can buy more gas. you can drive a car that will fit your whole family. you can live in a home that's further away from your work. you can go to home depot and buy more stuff. gas is the stuff of growth. for the last ten years, we've been spending 3% of gdp on gas. that's too much. during the reagan years and the carter years, we were spending 1% of gdp on gas. that's what makes growth possible. we could get back there again. we just need a republican congress and a republican president to take the chains off fracking. we could have 50 cent gasoline. >> i'm -- i'd love to take the chains off fracking, but we had a much stronger dollar. during the reagan years, we had a much stronger dollar. if memory serves me, the price of crude oi

really bad. if you think of george h.w. bush with the no new tax, read my lips, and quhwhat's coming out,e stories that they knew in advance it was a lie, they knew it was untrue, whatever you want to say. and by the way, these arguments only 5%, only 15 million people, every time you have a story like in the "wall street journal" this morning about a woman with cancer is losing her doctor, her insurance, these things ripple everywhere. there a reason the president -- can you imagine? what did you think the president was going to do, go out and say told you a fib, vote for mcauliffe, he's a great guy. his numbers are going down. they are very sulucky this is coming so late in the game. >> if terry mcauliffe becomes virginia's next governor, democrats will pounce on that and say these naysayers about the health care law, they failed. it's not that bad. look what happened in virginia. what do you think? >> well, every contest is a choice between the two major party nominees. and this one is no different. there is a libertarian running. but he doesn't figure into the likely winner's circle.
the subject? >> our debt and deficit taxes, spending jobs, national security are important. but right now, the most important issue the thing on everyone's mind whether you are a large, owner, a small be owner or a individual is a health care debacle, they tried to ram it through, circumvent me, i got elected in an attempt to stop obamacare, in massachusets they had a deal with white house they held me up being sworn in for a couple of weeks to ram it through, i got there, they did not allow one management to try to fix -- amendment to try to fix the bill, so same on them now. they are all complaining now, we didn't know about the grandfatherring, you know people will lose policies, well, they voted on it everyone said we don't care. healthcare, and debacle right now, and fact that people deeply concerned, rightly so it will cost too much, have way too much long wait in line, it just a mess. lou: are you concerned further that the republicans don't seem to be fining a common voice -- finding a common voice, with an opportunity to go to 2014, and i think they have got a gift from this admi

the case like the grimes campaign did, a state that takes in more federal money than it pays back in taxes damaged kentuckyians. statewide you can run that way. but these house districts it's hard to sell that story. >> david ignatius people talk about the republican party. there's so many different republican parties. i talk about, you got the governors. and the success of the governors that they've had. then you got basically the senate wing of the republican party and then the house wing of the republican party. and what works for one definitely doesn't work for the other and certainly what works for some house members actually undermines presidential candidates who have any, any dream of being able to compete with hillary clinton. >> we'll see if the chris christie wing of the party, the party that will talk about how to govern and make a big state like new jersey work if that gets traction. one of the things i've been following the last few weeks is the backlash in some hard line republican house tea party districts against those tea party hard liners. for example, justin amosh from m

device tax on an industry that represents about two-and-a-half percent of our gross domestic product in massachusetts that will cost jobs here in massachusetts. one of the problems is what we did in massachusetts was tailored to our population. it took advantage of health care and a number of different things, one of them, steve, was the fact that we had merged the non-group market with the individual market to try to spread out risks. what does the federal plan do? well, it reduces the number of rating factors we can use to evaluate risk for that pool. it's undermine wack we want to do. in fact, we have pleaded with our governor, governor patrick has asked the federal government, give us a waiver so that we can evaluate and price risk fairly and yet we now are going to be forced to use 4 rating factors as opposed to 106789 that's one of the major points of distinction here, massachusetts plan worked because it was designed for pennsylvania. we had expertise, for instance, in pricing risks. we had growth markets in medical devices. yet, when we look at what's happening at the federal
senate to bring that up. how in the world can that be. if you haven't paid your federal taxes, you said, if you want to get a federal contract you should be prohibited from doing that. barack obama the senator agreed with that, i'm agreeing with it now, yet we till can't get that kind of bill done, it's just another symptom of the two sides working together. i want to be that person. i'm a tea party guy but i want to work in a bipartisan way to strive forward but it's just not happening and it's very frustrating. >> at the same time on health care, do you think with all the problems with website, we're all acknowledging and ridiculinridin fact people tell me, i.t. people, if you don't know what is wrong with the code, you're really going to have to start from scratch. they don't know how there's an easy fix to this. at some point if the website works, is it possible republicans in general were wrong, that giving health care to however many million more people is bottom line a good thing? >> i'm not opposed to a website. i am concerned about a website that is not open and transparent, th
to raise your benefit, nobody's going to pay any taxes and by the way we're going to let private industry figure out how to do that and it did and it came in at about half the cost of what everybody estimated it would do. >> the white house has tried to point to the medicare part d rollout as proof things can get better. the question is will it? joining me now the co-chair of the national bipartisan commission on the future of medicare, deeply involved in working on medicare while in the senate and was a big part of getting medicare part d passed. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning, chuck. >> well, is it an apples to apples comparison? the white house has been telling me this behind the scenes, medicare part d's rollout was just as e erratic, give us some time, the public will be won over. >> history repeats itself. back in 1965 with medicare, doctors and hospitals said it would be the end of western civilization, yet now they depend on it every day. same with medicare part d. they said "d" stood for debacle when they were rolling it out. now 90% of seniors think it's a great progr
of people like me hate paperwork. they hate having to deal with accountants, they hate tax time, they hate keeping records, and they were told you don't have to deal with the bureaucracy, you're home free. just sign that policy and you're in business all for yourself. i think people were unfairly told you get away clean on this one. in fact you'll have to join the exchanges and deal with everything everybody else does. i think that was dishonest if it was done on purpose. >> most of us all hate change when it comes to things like this where we have to amend what we're used to, even if it is for our betterment. but let me talk about the fact that all of this is taking up the oxygen in the d.c. chamber and no one is talking about the shutdown and what that cost the country. >> i think these are different -- by the way, i think these are so unrelated. i know some people have already been saying, well, this is going to show that we were right in shutting down the government. i think people see them both as problems. one is the inefficient democrats and the other is the malicious republicans th
